KIRKUS REVIEW

Drama reigns supreme in suburban New Jersey.

Senior basketballer Antonio “Tone” Lopez can have any girl he wants. They throw themselves at his feet at school and sext him hot messages and pics at night. He can have anyone he wants, and he knows it. And he does. The only one he can’t have is Miesha, the beautiful, stone-cold new girl in town from Brooklyn, who, of course, becomes the object of his affection. Tension sparks the moment she walks into the school. Every other girl is jealous of her beauty, and the drama escalates when Tone shows an interest in her. Threats are made. Punches are thrown. Weaves are torn—and more. Abrams’ latest is good, raunchy fun. There’s little actual profanity spoken by the characters, but the sex trash talk runs rampant. What’s important, however, is that Tone and Miesha aren’t just stereotypes, and Abrams works hard to humanize them with their back stories and dreams. But what teen readers will love the most are the full-on catfights, trash talk and sizzling romance.

Good, dirty fun. (Romance. 15 & up)
